In short: Another glorious Gareth Davies race... In full: Barnes Runners have been "enjoying" Gareth's races for a number of years now. After Richmond Park and the Vanguards Way, this is a new addition which is just as friendly, just as well-organised and just as scenic. The beautiful Surrey landscape goes some way towards compensating for my broken body 24 hours after the race. We'll be back in force next year. Date of review: August 29, 2016
In short: Uplifting and life-affirming In full: A lovely, friendly, scenic race to do a few weeks before all the frenzied madness of the VLM. THIS is what running is all about (not queueing for portaloos in Greenwich). Date of review: March 16, 2014
In short: The perfect antidote to the oppressive madness of the VLM In full: I live locally and train in Richmond Park. Somehow, I thought that running around the Tamsin trail (something I have done scores of times) would be an exercise in pure tedium. Quite the opposite: a lovely atmosphere... great marshals... and deer close-up. I'll be back.
